Episode Summary


Tired of waiting for Brad and Judy to get the Planespheric Disc from Scooby and the gang, Pericles creates a herd of mutant cattle with the intention of destroying Crystal Cove so he can find the Disc. It's up to the gang, along with Mayor Nettles and Sheriff Stone to stop these creatures, before Crystal Cove vanishes from the map.

  • An exciting break from format

    Rather than having the same old mystery being solved at the end of the episode, we're told who's behind the crime and how rather early on, leaving the rest of the episode to be action-filled, and to develop the characters more.

    I wouldn't want this format every week, but once in a while it's refreshing.

    Also, an important supporting character is taken out of the action this week. I love the creative risks that the writers continue to take in this series.

  • Yippie ki yay cowboy!

    Now, this was an episode worthy of watching! It has everything! A really spook monster, romance, action sequences, humour and so much more! The idea of Professor Pericles creating a herd of mutant cattle is just awesome, because these things just keep eating and eating, without anything in the world to stop them... except Scooby and the gang.

    My favourite scene was defnetely the extraction of the queen from hive, where we see so much happening (yes, I'm talking about the rocket shot by Brad and Judy in order to destroy the chopper... that was one oheck of a scene). You definitely see that Pericles is through playing around, and that can't be good for Scooby and the gang.

    This one is worthy of a creepy 10.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Scooby holds a grudge against the farmer who kept him locked up in his farm which he escaped in The Night the Clown Cried.

    • Before becoming a politician and a mayor, Mayor Nettles was in the U.S. Air Force, where she piloted Black Hawks.

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (2)

    • Professor Pericles announces the "previously on..." recap for this episode. This is the first time a guest character has done this instead of a member of the gang.

    • A villain's scheme involving a mutated herd of cattle also occurred in the Scooby-Doo series Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get A Clue! episode, "Scooby Dudes".


    • The Lion King

      The scene of Nova losing Scooby's grip and falling into the skull cattle's stampede is reminiscent of when Mufasa was pushed by Scar off the cliff and was mortally wounded from falling through the wildbeest's stampede in The Lion King.
